The Rose Tower is a 333-metre (1,093-feet), 72-story skyscraper on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Originally, the tower was to be 380 m (1,247 ft.) high, but its projected height was reduced in further design modification. Construction began in 2004. ACC (Arabian Construction Co.) was the general contractor. On 24 October 2006, the building reached its full height with the addition of the spire. Although the tower was expected to open in April 2008, it still had not opened by September 2008. Once open, it is expected to become the world's tallest hotel. [cite news |title=Rotana to bring 10,000 more rooms under management |url=http://archive.gulfnews.com/articles/07/11/22/10169274.html|publisher="Gulf News" |date=2007-11-22|accessdate=2007-02-02] This hotel, known as "Rose Rotana Suites", will surpass both the 321m (1,053ft) Burj Al Arab, and the incomplete 330m (1,083ft) Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea.
